EPL Commentator Schedule

EPL Commentators on NBC: April 12, 2019

With four weeks remaining in the Premier League season, NBCSN is home to “Super Sunday” in the title chase this Sunday, April 14. First, it’s defending champions Manchester City (in second place) visiting Crystal Palace at 9:05 a.m. ET on NBCSN and Universo. Then, 1st-place Liverpool, two points ahead in the table and aiming to secure their first-ever Premier League title, host 3rd-place Chelsea at 11:30 a.m. ET on NBCSN and Telemundo. Chelsea are in a tight race for the top-4, currently leading a group of four clubs separated by five points for two positions. Arlo White and Lee Dixon will call the match from Anfield.

NBC Sports’ Premier League coverage this week kicks off on Friday, April 12 at 2 p.m. ET with a special simulcast of Sky Sports’ “Friday Night Football,” featuring Leicester City v. Newcastle at 3 p.m. ET on NBCSN. Leicester City look to extend their four-match winning streak, while Newcastle, who sit 7 points above the bottom-3, are still not safe from relegation.

Weekend coverage begins on Saturday, April 13 at 7 a.m. ET with Premier League Mornings, followed by 4th-place Tottenham v. Huddersfield on NBCSN and Universo. Only three points separate Tottenham and 6th-place Manchester United, as the race to the finish in the top-4 heats up.

At 10 a.m. ET, Burnley host Cardiff City on NBCSN in a huge match at the bottom of the table and Wolverhampton Wanderers visit Southampton on CNBC and Universo. Also at 10 a.m. ET, NBC Sports Gold presents two exclusive matches: Brighton & Hove Albion v. Bournemouth and Fulham v. Everton.

Saturday’s coverage concludes with 6th-place Manchester United v. West Ham at 12:30 p.m. ET on NBC and Universo. Manchester United enter the weekend three points outside the top-4, and will be looking to bounce back after a loss at Wolves.

NBC Sports’ Premier League coverage continues into next week, with Watford v. Arsenal on Monday, April 15 at 3 p.m. ET on NBCSN.

Next week’s midweek coverage concludes on Tuesday, April 16 at 2:45 p.m. ET with Brighton & Hove Albion v. Cardiff City on NBCSN.

Rebecca Lowe hosts Premier League Mornings, Premier League Live, and Goal Zone, joined by former Jamaica National Team player Robbie Earle and former U.S. Men’s National Team midfielder Kyle Martino.

      No.

      NBC $port$ Group hired Clive Tyldesley & Stephen Warnock to call Palace v Citeh for English-speaking viewers in the USA.

    The idiots at TSN have done it again. Changed all the channels of their EPL games right at kickoff time so I now have 2 recordings of Sportscenter and 1 women’s hockey to rewatch through the week. Such complete morons.

      Oh, wonderful. I’m sure most people on here don’t care about Canadian EPL coverage but it is frustrating how little TSN and Sportsnet care about serving soccer fans.

        It is also frustrating how little NBC Sports cares about serving soccer fans in the USA.
        Give me the freedom to be able to watch TSN & Sportsnet in the USA and let me decide/judge for myself.

          And they moved the Palace game this morning at the last minute so I don’t have that to watch either! Way to go,
          TSN, you messed up all four games you had this weekend you absolute muppets!!

        • Jon

          April 14, 2019 at 7:14 pm

          Sure, Azer, one recording of women’s hockey, two Sportscenters, and one empty recording. Enjoy away!

            Hi Jon,
            I understand the lack of games in Canada. I would be upset as well if I lived there. I was talking in general about comparing the coverage from Canada and NBC Sports, if the games were available. I would just like to see how other countries are showing the EPL, and Canada being our neighbor to the north would be an example. I believe there was an article on WST a couple of years ago about Sky Sports coverage in comparison to NBC. Mr. Harris can correct me on this.

              Hi Azer, It is always interesting to compare coverage from various countries. To be fair, things were quite good in Canada for several years, with nearly every game on cable TV. Currently TSN and Sportsnet are making no effort to serve soccer fans now that they are about to relinquish the rights so it can make for some frustrating weekends for fans looking forward to watching games. Cheers.

      You won’t have that problem next season when TSN/Sportsnet have no Premier League at all 🙂

      • Jon

        April 14, 2019 at 2:30 pm

        Yes, we might be whining about something else next year::) DAZN has been reliable in streaming all their content as scheduled and making games available immediately after for re-watching. My only concern is whether they’ll use familiar EPL commentators or their own (I hope the former). It would be great if they keep their EPL games available for the season (like they do for NFL) as opposed to for one week (like they do for Champion’s League, Serie A, English Championship, etc.).

    Is Azer finally happy, is Sky Sports better than NBCSN?

    • Azer

      April 12, 2019 at 9:58 pm

      Josesa
      Viewers in the UK watching the Premier League on Sky Sports don’t have to put up with stupid commercials running on the screen. That is my biggest issue with NBCSN, not the commentators, they’re all great.

      Bill Leslie is third-choice Sky commentator. The pecking order goes:
      1 – Martin Tyler
      2 – Rob Hawthorne
      3 – Bill Leslie

      with Daniel Mann and Alan Parry splitting any additional live matches.

      How about getting your attitude right and reading the article before posting?

      • Jon

        April 13, 2019 at 11:52 am

        Yes, Klemens always keeps it classy. Who will forget the weekend he berated Christopher for failing to post the commentators schedule when he was dealing with a hurricane.

    Welcome back Mr. Tyldesley. It’s been a while since he has been in Premier League Productions. I would rather have him over Jim Proudfoot to be completely honest.

    • Oliver Tse

      April 14, 2019 at 9:29 am

      FYI:

      Clive Tyldesley & Stephen Warnock are getting the big $$$ to call Palace v Citeh for NBC $port$ Group.

      They are NOT working for Premier League Productions.

      For the record, these are the English-language announcers working for Premier League Productions on Sunday:

      Palace v Citeh: Jim Proudfoot and Andy Townsend

      ‘Pool v Chelski: Peter Drury and Jim Beglin
